With Tony McCoy chasing his 4000th winner over jumps, there's money to be made, with a bit of luck. Thursday at Carlisle, the 18 time champion Jockey turned over a 123/1 accumulator, winning five of six races (the first four coming in for boss man, J P McManus). McCoy isn't waiting about. A small blip in his form came on Friday, as he was unsuccessful in finding a winner from his two runs at Fakenham. Considering how the weekend panned out, I don't think many will hold it against him.
Saturday & Sunday McCoy was booked for Aintree. He entered the meeting 16 winners short of his target. That figure sunk to just 14 when he completed a 76/1 treble. Sunday saw another decent crack at driving the total down with an 8/1 double. He closes the weekend with just 11 more to find. When & Where I wonder?
Since Thursday, McCoy has joined forces with Jonjo O'Neill ten times, churning out seven winners. Undoubtedly something to keep an eye on in weeks to come. It's no secret Jonjo has a knack for training winning horses & with McCoy on form, no doubt they'll have more to come. To ride 4000 winners over jumps, truly is an incredible feat, A P McCoy is undisputedly one of the best Jockeys of his time, possibly even all time. Hard to argue with a minimum of 100 wins a season & counting.
"I also got 100 winners in a season for the 19th consecutive year with the wins at Carlisle & that is something I am proud of. To ride 100 winners for 19 years in a row is nice & I don't think too many people will have done it".
